We took our dog and one of our granddogs with us. Tim and Patty had their two dogs also. The two younger ones and the little one (14 yrs.) had a blast running on the beach.
Later on in the month we had our cooking class in Santa Ana. We had to reschedule because of everyone's busy life, but finally we made it. It is called "Ragin' Cajun" through Hipcooks.com. It was so much fun! We made gumbo, shrimp ettoufee (sp), collard green salad and Bananas Foster. I would definitely do that again.
Our daughter got a job in Charleston, South Carolina. Dear old dad drove her out there last week and they had quite the adventure and are still alive and talking to each other!
I am still counting the days until retirement and looking forward to our Alaska trip.
